“Roger Ailes to be Indicted”

Posted by Charles II on February 28, 2011

That’s what Barry Ritholtz says.

It might even be true, but I’m not holding my breath.

If it does turn out to be true, watch out for airborne swine.

More News The National Media Won’t Tell You RE: Wisconsin

Posted by Phoenix Woman on February 28, 2011

— Instead of kicking out all of the protesters for “cleaning” as Scott Walker ordered (despite the fact that the protesters have been working with the cleaning and maintenance personnel to keep the place clean the entire two weeks they’ve been there), the cops only partially cleared out the first floor — and even then there were still lots of people there. Everyone else got to stay.

There’s a rumor going around that Wisconsin Republican state senator Dale Schultz may defect and vote against the Walker bill, but I’d take that with a grain of salt; I suspect it’s a ploy to lure Senate Democrats back for a quorum to get the bill passed. But if it’s true, it means that just two more defections from the Republican side would suffice to kill the bill.

— In the two weeks since the start of the protests at the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison, there have been no arrests — zero, zip, goose egg, nada — of any protesters for conduct-related reasons. The “union thuggery” hyperventilatings of FOX and its copycats in the rest of the GOP/Media Complex were groundless.

Stay tuned for further developments. This isn’t over yet.
